OMG!!! Casa Salamandra is amazing. We looked at that villa in May, we didn't go with it because at the time they were charging 8K event fee plus you couldn't stay there and the party had to end by 11pm. I hope all that has changed for you. The place is great for an event. Check out KLK photography she shot a wedding there for Lori/Richard this year. It will blow your mind.

That is wonderful that you get to stay there. Congrats... Who is your wedding coordinator? I know Kristin, who did Lori's wedding, did a fantastic job. I am excited to see her work, she is doing our wedding.
Again congrats the villa is amazing.

Also, can you girls tell me what the difference is between doing a wedding at a villa than a resort? I know it would be more private but what are prices like and what other things do they offer?

The privacy and intimacy of the villa wedding made the extra cost worth it.

After getting SO MUCH useful info from BDW, I need to start sharing
I found a lovely villa-like place off of tripadvisor called Bungalows Lydia in San Pancho, which is about 45 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta. Just google Bungalows Lydia. After searching high and low for an intimate villa to have our wedding, this was by far the most affordable and awesome place I could find. In short, it's oceanfront, on a rocky promontory between two private beaches with nothing but jungle around it. I haven't seen it in person but the pictures are breathtaking. We're planning on having a private ceremony on the beach followed by a reception in the palapa. And they don't charge an event fee! Mayte, the lady I've been in contact with has been so helpful and accommodating, even suggesting that they would build us a restaurant on the premises just for our guests/event. I am still shocked by that.
Anyways, the downside is that it has a max capacity of about 25 and they don't allow non-guests to use their property, so it has to be a very small wedding. Also, there's no AC, but it does getconstant tradewinds. I hope someone finds this useful!
